Solidarity Strike with Diane!
On April 7th, 2021 4th-generation shrimper, activist, and author Diane Wilson began a hunger strike at the waterfront of Lavaca Bay to demand that the Biden Administration stop the dredging of the mercury-contaminated Matagorda Ship Channel, and ban crude oil exports.
April 21st will mark 2 weeks since Diane began her hunger strike. We are asking allies far and wide to hunger strike in solidarity with Diane for 24 hours and amplify her demands.
You are welcome to participate in the solidarity strike at whatever level feels safest for your health whether that is by skipping a meal during the 24 hour period or refraining from eating altogether over those 24 hours.
For more information on Diane’s hunger strike you can follow her daily updates on Facebook (Hunger Strike to Stop the Dredging and Stop Oil Exports) , Twitter (@unreasonableDW), and TikTok (@unreasonablewoman).
